English abstract

The capacity and capability of librarians and information professionals in the present day context should be of the level required to guide the students and teachers. Information technology occupies a key role in the management of libraries and information centres. Management aspects like recruitment, induction, training, promotion, etc., are being affected considerably by these modern technologies. The renaming of libraries into information centres is an explicit example of this transformation. The modern equipments like computers, CD ROM drives, printers, reprographic and other equipments, modem, V SAT and other communication equipments, multimedia installations, barcode readers, etc., are completely revolutionised the practices and procedures followed in libraries. In order to cop up with this situation, libraries have to adopt the scientific staff management practices for achieving effective utilization of resources, user satisfaction and staff motivation. The paper gives a detailed account towards this requirement.
